They say that home is where the heart is, but what about when you rent a home on vacation? Suddenly your heart becomes more vulnerable. You want a home that treats your heart like the love of your life…but even better. Dare I say, like how your grandma would treat you. Anticipating your every need, and always having more in store than you could ask for. Homes like this are what today’s gust specializes in. Ryan saw the need for a home rental company that went the extra mile for both home owners, and guests on vacation alike. He pairs up amazing properties with people looking for a “grandma home” (damn I’m good at marketing). He’ll explain the ins and outs of the luxury rental business and tell us about his decision to quit the corporate life and pursue his own business.
